an injury, usually involving division of tissue or rupture of the integument or mucous membrane, due to external violence or some mechanical agency rather than disease.
a similar injury to the tissue of a plant.
an injury or hurt to feelings, sensibilities, reputation, etc.
So to sum up, the word 'wounded' can be applied in 2 key ways:
- First is the breaking or penetrating of the tissue (or in the teapots case, its exterior) which can be seen as Physically Wounded
- Or, to insult, be unfair or cruel, causing harm to feelings, etc. which can be seen as Emotionally Wounded
